This just in from the UCLA Division of Geriatrics:
New studies from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine add support to the growing body of evidence that nutrition pays a significant tole in the development or prevention of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Using mouse models, researchers found that restricting caloric intake overall, and carbohydrates intake in particular, triggered brain activity associated with longevity while reducing the build-up of plaque.
FYI – A diet high in calories and saturated fat (similar to a large percentage of the American population) caused a greater buildup of plaque.
Keep that in mind, especially those of you who may have a genetic predisposition to AD.
